Wine & Viticulture Journal

July/August »»» subscribe

The focus of the July-August issue of the Wine & Viticulture Journal is 'Winery Innovations & Technology' and we highlight what's new in the global wine industry. New contributor Mark O'Callaghan, of Wine Network Consulting, looks at micro-oxygenation and addresses what has changed with the technique in the last 10-15 years. In the article, Mark presents his discussion with several winemakers in Australia to examine how MOX is being used today, what's new, and what has changed and why?

Editor Sonya Logan looks at some of the innovations and products that have been introduced to the global wine industry in the last 12 months, with a particular focus on the area of wine maturation. Current OIV president Monika Christmann and colleagues from Hochschule Geisenheim University, in Germany, discuss the effects of dramatic climate change on traditional viticultural and oenological practices. Italian researchers look at grape-derived fining agents as an alternative to potentially allergenic proteins derived from animals or plants.

In viticulture news, regular contributor Tony Hoare gives his tips on how to survive rising power costs in the vineyard, and Sonya Logan reports on the outcomes of a long-term subsurface irrigation trials conducted by SARDI, led by Dr Mike McCarthy.

Researchers share their results from a study in the Waipara region of North Canterbury, in New Zealand, to investigate the interaction between three different soil types and different irrigation volumes on vine responses. We also share the preliminary results from spore traps located in four wine regions of Australia, and the researchers discuss the implications of these results on pruning and wound protection to manage grapevine trunk diseases.

Among the business reports, Gaetjens Langley director Stephen Strachan gives his review on vineyard and winery asset sales in the Australian wine industry over the last 12 months.

A tasting of 27 Nero d'Avola wines from nine different regions in Australia completes the issue, and we hear from three of the producers of the top wines of the tasting about how they manage the grape in their vineyard and wineries.
